Talk about an easy day at the office.

Coming off the first NCAA Tournament appearance in school history in March, Northwestern has struggled to a 5-4 record to begin this season.

They aren't struggling at all tonight against 2-10 Chicago State.

The Wildcats lead the Cougars, whose only two wins have come against NAIA Silver Lake College and East-West University, by a score of 55-8 at halftime. Yes, seriously.

Firing on all cylinders is an understatement by the NU hoops Twitter account. Chicago State has nearly as many turnovers (15) as field goal attempts (19), and they have made just two of those shots. Northwestern is shooting 57 percent from the field and four Wildcat players have outscored Chicago State as a team.

This is a cupcake beyond all cupcakes.
